Carmen

Carmen is a spayed female Canis africanus (township dog) and was probably born around January 2008.

She moved here from the Animal Welfare Society in June 2008 - to be in charge of security. This was after some gentlemen tried to steal the copper pipes from the side of the practice one night.

Carmen is very happy to meet every new patient and owner. Her other favourite occupation is encouraging in-patients to enjoy the garden with her.

Levi

P1070904

Levi (Donnehaus Levi Five O One) is a spayed female Dobermann and was born on 1 Sept 2006.

She lives here on long-term loan from Donné Lucas of Donnehaus and Chaldonne kennels to keep Carmen on the straight and narrow. 

Running on the beach is about as essential to her life as breathing.
